MOvie Day

On Friday, June 9 at 4:00 PM, both cohorts of learners of AWS (AMAZON WEB SERVICES) re/Start were treated to a showing of the Australian biographical movie “True Spirit” directed by Sarah Spillane, based on the memoir of Jessica Watson. The movie tells the inspiring story of an Australian sailor who attempted a solo global circumnavigation at the age of 16. The movie was made available for streaming on Netflix on February 3, 2023, and was shown to the learners as a way to break the monotony of training sessions and provide an opportunity for everyone to relax and enjoy some entertainment. The event was organized and was hosted in the office auditorium itself. Popcorn and drinks were provided to the learners, and everyone was encouraged to sit back, relax, and enjoy the movie. 

The film tells the story of an Australian sailor who attempted a solo global circumnavigation at the age of 16. Jessica Watson, the film's protagonist, plans to become the youngest sailor to have traveled the world alone. In doing so, the intrepid 16-year-old not only seeks to fulfill her dream but also faces her greatest fears at the same time. The film is a powerful and inspiring story of courage, determination, and resilience, and is a must-watch for anyone who is looking for a heartwarming and motivational experience. 

The event was a resounding success, with both cohorts enjoying the movie and having a great Friday. The decision to show the movie to the learners was a smart one, as it provided a much-needed break from the rigors of training and allowed everyone to unwind and enjoy some time together. The film's message of perseverance and determination was an inspiration to all who watched it, and it served as a reminder of the importance of hard work and dedication in achieving one's goals. Overall, the showing of True Spirit was an immense success, and it was a wonderful way for the learners at AWS re/Start training to come together and enjoy a shared experience. The event was a testament to the power of entertainment in bringing people together and fostering a sense of community, and it is sure to be remembered fondly by all who attended. 

The event was a success, and everyone had a good Friday. The learners appreciated the opportunity to take a break from their training sessions and enjoy some entertainment with their colleagues. Some of the learners even shared their thoughts about the movie and how it related to their own experiences. Our team is planning to organize similar events in the future to help learners stay motivated and engaged throughout their training journey.
